5. T.J. Clemmings, OT (Pitt)

This Pitt Panther is an offensive tackle whose inexperience worries me. He was originally a defensive end, who was moved to the right tackle position. Clemmings has the prototypical left tackle body, he has the athletic traits that you look for. But only having 2 seasons as an offensive tackle is worrisome.

Clemmings is 6-5 and weighs 309 pounds. He has long arms and quick feet. I should probably see an offensive tackle that could be dominant in the NFL. The problem is that the NFL is a big jump from the ACC. He will have to play right tackle and develop into a left tackle.

NFL football players are naturally gifted athletes, but Clemmings is not a natural offensive lineman. The game will likely move to fast, his actions won’t be automatic and as practiced as they need to be.

I could be wrong on Clemmings, he has the talent and the physical tool set to be a great player. If he goes to a team that will be patient with him, his upside is out of this world. I’m just not sure he’ll ever reach his full potential.
